Stampin' Up! Postage Due - Artful Stampers Blog Hop!




Hello friends!
It’s Stampin’ Up’s! New Annual Catalogue Time!!!  To celebrate, some of our team – The Artful Stampers – are sharing fabulous projects showcasing a selection of the gorgeous new products available in the 2012-2013 Catalogue!!

You may have hopped here from Anna Foster’s blog...I’m stop number 7 on the hop and I’m so glad you “hopped” in to see me!
Today I wanted to showcase the beautiful new stamp set "Postage Due" and the Designer Series Paper that matches the set called "Fan Fair". Both offer a lovely vintage feel to your projects.

I've teamed them with a couple of new embellishments....the Vintage Faceted Designer Buttons and Naturals Designer Buttons. I've also used a new "In Color"...Midnight Muse....it is glorious!!   I stamped the image directly on to the DSP....something I don't often do, but this paper really lends itself to being a fabulous background feature.  


  




Next stop on the blog hop is Michelle Bartholomaeus I am sure you will find lots of wonderful ideas on her amazing blog to inspire you.
Thank you for visiting and if you'd like to leave a comment I'd be very pleased to hear what you think of the new catalogue and products :-)

  1. Hi Alison, your card is gorgeous! The colours are beautiful and subtle and all works so well together, and yes, I agree, Midnight Muse is glorious. I wasn't going to get this stamp set, but now I will just have to!! :)
    Happy Stamping!

    1. Thanks so much for your lovely comment Christina! We must have been commenting at roughly the same time as I said almost exactly the same thing about your stamp set!!! LOL!
      btw...I have put the original photo of this card up on my blog now...last night I had to load a woeful iPhone photo of it as I was having difficulty with our bandwith on the PC. It's a better photo and you can see the DSP better. :)
